4 Mile Run and Strength Class

I ran 4 miles today.  I ran 4 miles today.....  I RAN 4 MILES TODAY!!  Five months ago, I would have never dreamed of saying that.  The funny thing is that the people I ran with today talked about how 4 miles is going to be nothing in a few months.  How cool is that.  I have run 3 5k's and felt extremely tired after.  I did my 4 miles and felt great.  I could've kept going.  

Jenn and I went to our normal group strength class afterwards.  It was just as hard as ever.  I was so exhausted after.  But I did it.  I worked hard, and I enjoyed it.

Next week, we are running 5 miles.  I am very excited for the run.  Life is good.

Grats Chris!
And it is true about 4 miles being nothing after awhile. Keep up the training and keep increasing your training volume and 4 miles will eventually be a really short run, like 30 minutes and you'll wonder if you worked out hard enough.
